Plumbing Contractor License Requirements in Florida:


  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Have good moral character. (A criminal incident in the past does not prevent you from getting a license so long as you have had your civil rights restored, all debts to society paid, no pending or current liens such as IRS, and have no pending or ongoing criminal litigation).
  • Credit worthy. (Applicants will be subject to a credit report on both the applicant and the business with a preferred FICO score of a 660 or above. )
    • If you do not meet the 660 FICO score, you CAN still get your license by posting a licensing bond.
      • Bond amounts vary based on whether the applicant is a Division I or Division II contractor, however this amount can be reduced by 50% upon taking a board-approved financial responsibility course.
      • Gold Coast offers this course in addition to our exam prep programs: Learn more…Click Here!
  • Four years of proven plumbing construction experience. (FAR 61G4-15.001)
    • You do not have to have the necessary experience before you take the exam.
      • The test scores are valid for 4 years meaning you have 4 years to gain the required experience after passing the state exam.
    • Note: 3 years of any accredited college credits can be used in place of construction experience regardless of the subject matter/courses.

 

Important note about experience:

 

Experience does not have to be gained in Florida or even the USA so long as it can be verified and notarized by a Licensed Plumbing Contractor.
